My old and little 10" eMachine Win7 netbook seemingly boots fine to a live Xubuntu (14.04.1) on a USB stick. EXCEPT there is no connection to the outside world. I note there is a slide button with a little green light on the netbook for connecting to a wi-fi network. This is on by default when booting to the Win 7 mother system. It does not function when I boot into Xubuntu-the green light never comes on. The few times I've used Ubuntu on other desktop systems, it seems to find wi-fi networks that I can connect to. This time, there is nothing. I've tried 'editing' a new wi fi connection, but that doesn't seem to get me anywhere. My assumption is I need that green light on before I mess up the next step ;-) Appreciate any suggestions. TIA.
